Report from the Poll at Arlington Central Library

The Green Miles is working the polls for Arlington Democrats this morning! I'm manning a relatively quiet spot so I thought I'd post these pictures.

The line is gradually getting a bit shorter now (at 8:15am), but at 7:30 this morning, here's what the wait looked like.

The line snaked out the Central Library auditorium, through the back door, down the back steps ...

Past the tennis courts, around the corner ...

Through the parking lot past the baseball diamond ...

And halfway down the block towards Washington Boulevard ...

At times this morning, the line has been up to two hours long. But I haven't heard a single complaint.

Cushiest job of the day -- election monitor. Really? You're worried about voter fraud here? Come on. This is Arlington. We get it done.

Election lines are like holiday travel, never as bad as the media makes it out to be.

Williamsburg Middle School opened with an hour long line - but once that cleared - in about an hour and a half - there was essentially no line. Taylor Elementary School at 10:30 am and at noon had essentially no line. PTA Bake Sales across the county are suffering from lack of business!
